That is the weep hole for the water pump. Replacing the water pump is a huge job on this engine. I can give you some direction if you want to try to tackle it yourself.

Oil poured from botton as well as housing unit.


housing unit? are you refering to the engine block? If oil comes out as fast as you pour it in, check your drain plug in the oilpan, holes in your oil pan. Did you run over something recently?

Usually engines hold their oil unless you've run over a big rock and knocked a hole in the oil pan.

drain plug has fallen out more than likely.

Beside regulating the water flow to maintain correct coolant operating temperature part of the thermostat job is to restrict the flow through the radiator to allow the heat to be transferred to the cooling fins and to the air.. If the flow is too fast (no thermostat ) you will have boiling before you leave the drive way. If you have been doing work on the engine and have replaced the head gaskets it is common to place the gaskets on so that the air holes between the block and head are blocked by the gasket. If you have used after market gaskets then some do not have the necessary holes in the right places to allow the water to circulate around the head and the rear of the block

Car was not running hot but all at once car poured water out bottom of car could broken therm cause this or water pump or what could br other things wrong


If it really poured out , I would say a hose split. Either the upper or lower rad hose , or a heater hose.
The thermostat is inside a metal housing , so not likely. Water pump would be a slower leak.
A cracked expansion bottle might leak fast , but only a couple of litres. I suggest filling up cooling system , and physically looking for the leak.

Leaking coolant from a small hole located in the block right under the thermostat housing coolant inlet. we removed housing and gasket replaced gasket and installed, leaks from small hole?


water pump failure, water pump on these run off the timing chain and the timing chain runs in oil, so they could not just put a weep hole on the pump because it would go strait to the oil pan, instead they redirected the coolant from the leaking pump to just below the thermostat housing. And good luck, it's at least a 6 hour job on these. Brandon-MO
